Yes I am looking out of my room door. In a small courtyard, 4 walls do make a pool.

The drain system is very poor and whoops, the rain got very heavy.

At the door step! (the white object is a splash guard so I can have the door open)

As the storm started up again in the night. The courtyard does drain and in an hour or so the water had receded.

20170718: New Toy! Graphic creative Fun!

Print

OK, this is just to show what kind of silly “Far Out Design” abilities I have here.

A simple logo of elements or a a special wreath of some design is all possible.

I just got this and was playing around last night, I have 1000s of elements to use, or can create to use my own “special elements” in this program.

Several setting of how many times the pieces are copied around the circle too so while this is 6 sided, 4 or just 2 is possible .

 

Woman and rain shower

And yes, they can be transparently added to other images.

sorry I just happen to love the overall of this image… the idea of adding some words in the banners is just too obvious to me & the fun of these flowers in this arrangement, well I am a nature & landscape photographer!

20170608: Water Purifying by Sunlight! Rural or cities, cheap system, do it yourself!

Contact me about anything you need explained, I learned this trick some where close to 50 years ago. Desert survival trick. You can make these easy, and with basic supplies any where. Making roofless huts or areas of holes with fences around to keep animals out of the area. While it does not make huge amounts of water in a hurry, you can produce gallons in a day with a simple series of these all working for free of solar sunlight energy.

If you live in a city, put them on your roof tops, safe from theft & in the sunlight.

20170519: Friday Funnies!

Print

Having spent 57 years laughing at people who want to live forever & believe some religion can produce your past in a “new world that never dies so your physical body lasts for ever & ever”…

I have as far back as I can remember used the saying “Born to die.”

After all how long do you think you will like eating chocolate pudding for every meal of every day… Eternity is very long.

I will take the experiences of this life and move on!

20170507 FAKE NEWS, pushing for censorship…

I wrote this piece on Mediumdotcom and I am re-posting myself here, just to continue to spread awareness of why CENSORSHIP IS WRONG…

View story at Medium.com

FAKE NEWS, a push for censorship!

OK, FAKE NEWS… oh my god!

Right, well as a child the GOSSIP COLUMN entertainment magazines were loaded on the supermarkets with fake news.

No one screamed to the kill them crazy publishers!

Now suddenly it is proper for the MASSES to demand that you only allow the “government sponsored” news be told…

Oh course it is the GOVERNMENT SPONSORED News agencies telling you this!

Hum, intelligent minds are curious!

Dumb people want entertainment & cheap food.

“Bread & Circuses” at least 2500 years old and STILL the battle cry of the the apathy now crowd….

If you teach children HOW to THINK, not what to think, you improve the survival of the human species.

If you allow a church/religion to dictate to the government what that government should allow to be taught. You improve the survival of that church/religion, till it KILLS OFF EVERYTHING.

Religions are parasites, they produce nothing produce of value. They demand the highest quality in food, housing and virgins for sacrifice.

In other words they suck the life out you, claiming that you will be “REWARDED AFTER YOU DIE”… what better way to protect the monies you steal than offer a money back guarantee claim-able only AFTER YOU ARE DEAD!

So for thousands of years the world was flat because the religions did not want you to realize the religions were sailing AROUND the world claiming to own it.

How can a world be flat if the explorers sailed east and returned to the starting point and other explorers sailed west and also returned to the starting point.

Illogical behavior to get illogical answers accepted.

So here we are in 2017, governments everywhere have been caught cheating & stealing & robbing the countries blind.

People are pissed, so what happens?

The religions speak out AGAINST INTELLIGENCE…

The religions speak of how it was better when no one heard this voice of opposition!

Religion speak out against anything that does not support it’s person point of view….

Suddenly “FAKE NEWS” is everywhere and a person who can tell the difference is a criminal…

The 4 Bible religions, Jews, Christians, Catholics, Muslims, all created from the same texts, in the same lands on the planet, claim the planet is only a few years old….

WHO IS FAKE NEWS!

Who screams the loudest to remove and CENSOR FAKE NEWS?

Yeah the people who CREATE Fake News…

TRUMPed has been in office for a couple of months now, just passing his 100 day mark…

Campaign speeches of “Draining the Swamp” are now replaced with massive levels of corruption, nepotism, Laws against free speech, laws to protect the 1% ELITE RICH & Wall Street Bankers, putting CEOs of polluting corporations in charge of the government agencies that protect the Middle Class against such actions…

and ANTI WAR….

Is now the the opposite as he LEADS the charge to wars everywhere,

of course I am “FAKE NEWS” because right there in TRUMPed’s financial statements is the stocks…

How dare I have facts….

Notice too the Boeing & HALIBURTON ( USA always sends in the Haliburton to clean up after a war) and many other companies that always PROFIT from USA war games…

And Now TRUMPed wants all “Whistle Blowers” arrested as terrorist…

So the next time you ask for Facebook to CENSOR Fake News, ask yourself, who does Mark represent if he is on a campaign tour across USA, accepted Millions of dollars in agreement to work with USA government to expose “terrorist/criminals”… and block “Fake News” by the governments standards?

The next time you ask someone their opinion, ask yourself, do you want to know what they think? Or do you want to hear them tell you what you want to hear?

Ask yourself if you parent or a boss, how many times have you told someone to “Think for themselves” and then gotten mad or punished them for thinking differently than you?

My 26 year old son knows to this VERY day, he never has to WORRY ABOUT CHALLENGING DAD. It is accepted he has different eyes and sees the world differently.

If he stops thinking for himself, then the feces hits the fans… not because he believes or sees something differently.

How does a industry grow, if everyone does the same thing?

How does a society right it wrongs if only a “Socially acceptable” answer is allowed to be seen?

How is there any medical breakthroughs if no one challenges the “Old way” or stops caring about profits and works for people instead?

I grew up learning to research out the data myself…

I learned to change my mind when the data required it.

I grew needing to THINK FOR MYSELF TO SURVIVE.

Now I am a “Whistle Blower” with a government of my country of birth wanting me dead & my so called “old buddies from school” running away fast because it scares them to think for themselves…

and worse to remember I was right 41 years ago!

So start thinking for yourself…

It is scary sure… but to let the government scare you into selling out your children & friends will be even scary,

specially at night when the Nightmares come…
